Re: Performance Gestures [was: Re: Laptops]

Fripp is really a charachter,i remember seeing him in
Solana Beach as well in the 90īs, he played before the
league of gentelmen.As he was getting ready to open up
with his soundscapes some drunk dude in the back
yelled "go bob!" and Fripp put his guitar down and
evil stared at the guy without saying a word or moving
like some strange alien from mars for about 20
seconds,the audience (including myself) couldnīt help
it and started laughing! Belew on the other hand  is
happy to hear such remarks,clowns around and almost
invites you to get up onstage and dance with him, i
can see why Crimson broke up for a while...
